The Samsung Galaxy S4 is predicted to sell around 10 million units a month according to South Korean news site Money Today, which says Samsung has ordered its suppliers to make 10 million components per month for the next Samsung handset.
Although the prediction isn’t completely impossible, seeing as the Apple sold 47.8 million iPhones during Q4 2013, Samsung would have to nearly double the opening sales figures of the top existing handsets.
Predecessors of the yet-to-be-announced handset have both been great successes, but the Samsung Galaxy 3 took 50 days to sell 10 million units and the Samsung Galaxy S2 took five months to achieve anywhere near the huge figure.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Features
With hype surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S4 reaching all new heights, rumoured regarding the phone's specs are rife. Reported specs include a 4.99-inch screen with 1080p resolution.
The next Samsung flagship handset is rumoured to break the specs mould by packing an Exynos 5 Octa eight-core 1.8GHz chip running Android 4.2.1 OS straight from the box.
Speculators suggest the phone could also have a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and 2-megapixels snapper in the front, support wireless charging and have 2GB of RAM.
Samsung has set an annual sales goal of 500 million smartphones for 2013, which it could achieve with the help of the long-discussed and highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S4.
As yet, there have been no confirmed Samsung Galaxy S4 specs details from Samsung, but the potential iPhone 6 rival is expected to launch at Mobile World Conference next month.
